"There is this boy" layout for Scrap the Boys design team.

Helloooo

Are you looking for a challenge to play along with before the end of the month runs out???  Well then why not check out the Scrap the Boys site as this months challenge was super fun to play along with. September's challenge is based around this saying..


and requires you have a photo of yourself in there also!!

So I literally used the quote as inspiration to create a large title on my layout and go from there. 




I used the brand new LOVE ALWAYS collection from Cocoa Vanilla Studio,  that I picked up from my LSS The Scrap N Patch. As girly as this collection might come across as , I found it super easy to use on this boy layout because of the all the greys in the collection. 




Well I hope that perhaps you might pop on over and play along with us over on the Scrap the Boys challenge site. I love it that I am getting more photos pf my little man scrapped :)

Till next time 

Much love

A weekend with " Today" layout for Sugar Maple Paper Co

Heelloooo


Well I have another layout share for you today using the gorgeous Cake for Breakfast kit from Sugar Maple Paper co. If you haven't already seen but I have created a couple of layout already using this kit which you can see HERE and HERE

Lemme tell ya!! this kit is JAM PACKED with so much scrappy goodness that I have already created 6 layouts and have a TON of goodies left over still!!!! WOW..  And I am so ispired by all the goodies that I just want to keep creating!!

So let me show you what I have created today..

To start this layout I desperately wanted to use this butterfly cut file that I grabbed from the Clique Kits store when I was a guest designer for them. I just love butterflies and I was inspired to back this one with lots of pretty scraps from the kit, and the layout just rolled from there. 

I will say that this layout ended up with a lot more journaling then I thought I would have , so it has kinda taken over the layout..lol.. but that is why we scrapbooking right??? So I am ok with that..

Through out my journaling I scattered these cute Fancy Pants floral alphas.. I helped to break up the journaling too and makes it look a little more interesting.

Because I have been on a stitching kick lately I wanted to hand stitch part of my title , so I added the little "love" word and stitched it with white thread.

To help blend in all the colours in the butterfly wings , I decided to create a watercolour background , because you know, watercolour helps everything lol.

Till next time

"Today" layout for Sugar Maple Paper co..

Hellooooo loves..



I am back again with another layout for the Sugar Maple Paper Co layout that I created with the Cake for Breakfast kit  .. I was pushing myself to use this paper that had that super pretty " Today" title which is a Websters Pages paper ..

Before I started though I decided to cut out some of the paper as the b side had some flowers that I could fussy cut and add to this side of the layout. Which I did under the white cut file of the orchid..WHICH was FREE from the gorgeous Bea Valint which you can find HERE . Her work is stunning and she has a gorgeous selection of free cut files..

SO let me show you what I created with the stunning " Cake for breakfast" kit..
I have also created another layout already with this kit which you can see HERE

To create the background I added a layer of gesso with my fingertips, and once that was dry I added some splashes of watercolour and gold glimmer spray from BoBunny to give it a pretty "messy" look.

Above you can see where I have I layered the fussy cut flower under the cut file to add some interest.

A weekend with " Blessed" layout for Sugar Maple Paper Co.

Heellooooo

Have you heard of the new kit club on the block??

Ohhhh la la they are a brand new kit club, which for the time being are offering this gorgeous kit , and one other, that I have started to play with!! I have an unboxing video at the end of the post which shows you exactly what is in this particular kit "Cake for Breakfast".


So let me show you the very first layout that I have created from this gorgeous kit..


"Blessed" layout by Bernii Miller for Sugar Maple Paper Co using the Cake for Breakfast kit.


I had a couple of these butterfly die cuts laying around on my desk, that were actually from the January Clique Kits - when I was there guest designer.. and I love them.. so thought they would make a perfect addition to this layout.

I just added a little cluster to the middle of the butterflies, and adhered them down with foam tape for some dimension.

I also wanted to hand stitch my title, as I am really enjoying this process right now. I just love the sweet handmade look it adds.

A weekend with " First Day" layout for Scrapping Clearly design team.

Heelloooo


Welcome to the weekend!!!

A love the weekends as it means it is my chance to grab a cuppa and catch up on some crafting.. It also means that I get the chance to "play" and try out some different ideas that have been playing around in my mind..

Like this one..

This is a picture of me way back when on my first day off school.. I was dressed in this sweet traditional Hungarian shirt my mother had for me but I have been waiting to be inspired to create a layout to match.. I then found this free cut file which is based on this exact embroidery pattern on my shirt #winning. 


"My First Day' layout by Bernii Miller for Scrappingclearly using the Star Shine collection by Shimelle Lane.


So I used that as the main focus on the page and and teamed it with the Shimelle Lane - Star Shine collection.. which was perfect for this older photo..

I also used these super cool and retro thickers which are apart of the collection..

And this is the whole layout :) I added in some hand stitching to the flower stems and watercolour in the background .. I also mounted the flowers with some thick foam tape to add some dimension to the layout..

I am so happy with how this layout turned out, and I am even happier that I managed to use up this much older photo.. I gave myself a pat on the back for that lol..

Remember if you love this collection as much as me..you can pick up the Star Shine collection HERE

Till next time

A weekend with " Stand like a pineapple" layout and process video.

Hellloooo..


Welcome to my little part of the world :) 

Today I am sharing a layout that I created with some older supplies that I am inspired to get into and create with .. For this layout I was inspired by two main things.. firstly a quote that I found on pinterest and secondly by a magazine called "Love Quilting" that I subscribe too and just happened to arrive in my mailbox this weekend..

SO I thought I would try and combine the two.. and well.. I created the layout below..

If anything perhaps next time I would not create such a large element and title in one layout - but then again I really love how it turned out, and thats all that matters right??

So let me show you what I created and down below I also have the process video to match.


"Be a pineapple" layout by Bernii Miller using Pink Paislee "Hello Sunshine" collection.


Here is the quote that I found on pinterest and totally love!! 
I LOVE creating huge titles on my pages .. and should do it more often God knows I have enough alphas here to do it lol..

I love the fact that I was able to mix and match different alphas for the title, but decided to only sew through the chipboard pieces as I found it needed something to anchor down the large pieces.. I mainky used the Pink Paislee " Hello Sunshine" collection for this layout and I was so pleased I was using up my stash .

Yes I know this layout has a lot going on visually, but I do love how it ended up turning out :) I will definitely be trying out another patchwork paper element on page again, I think I will start flipping through my quilting magazines this weekend.

A weekend with " Darcy" layout for the Scrapping Clearly design team.

Heeelloo




Well it is new month and that means it is a new challenge over on the Scrapping Clearly blog this month and I have managed to play along with the sketch challenge..

As you may know .. I am way addicted to the Star Shine collection by Shimelle Lane .. through and through.. this would seriously have to be one of my all time favourite collections.. all the bright primary colours, the patterns and the versatility are just perfect.. So I am creating LOADS of layouts with this collection.. and they all look different to each other.. ( I grabbed these all from the Scrapping Clearly store btw)

So this is what I created for this months sketch challenge... And right at the end I have a process video to boot:)
